I don’t know if this topic may or may not interest you but I need to talk about it. Even if you guys aren’t interested, I’d still feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest.
Anyway, the thing is as some of you may or may not be aware of that I completed writing two first drafts of my books this year. One story is a NA, Contemporary and the other one is a YA, Dystopian. For my earlier manuscript, I have sent it out to some indie publishers that I am interested to publish with them, even my one true favourite publisher who I have always dreamed of publishing with them—Oftomes Publishing. I know that the publisher is an indie and even if I do publish with them, readers may or may not even find my book interesting and read them but that publisher to me in my heart is like Penguin, Harper Collins and some other hot shot publishers.
So, here comes the title of this blog post into the scene. I told myself, multiple times now that if any of them still haven’t replied or take interest in my book before the year ends, I might go into self-publishing my first book.
I am fully aware of the competition and how hard it is to get my book published. Yet, I still will not lose hope because even if they won’t publish my book, there’s always another alternative to the solution. I have heard a lot of stories from writers who self-publish their books and even with authors who have for years now, how they ventured into it and I can confidently say it now that this is something that I have been considering for a lot of time now after listening to their reviews.
I have dreamed of seeing my book getting published and this is something that I truly want to work hard in achieving it.
I shall end this blog post now and leave you all with an aesthetic of my first book, titled 9,389 Miles.
